President Tinubu first year in office was to study Buhari’s failures; give him more time – Bode George tells Nigerians

A chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Bode George has come to the defense of President Bola Tinubu’s performance in his first year in office...READ THE FULL STORY HERE▶

According to him, Tinubu used his first year in office to study and examine the failures of his predecessor, former President Muhammadu Buhari.

Bode George, a known rival of Tinubu, asked Nigerians to give the president one more year to deliver on his electoral promises and turn around the fortunes of the country.

He made this known statement in an interview with Arise Television on Friday, June 7, 2024.

A former Deputy National Chairman of the PDP, George stated that although Tinubu was part of those who formed the Buhari government, taking over and now leading the nation would be different.

He said, “He had never served at that level (presidency). Well… you will say he was part of the party (APC) that formed the government (of Muhammadu Buhari), but it’s a hell of a different thing taking over and now leading the team.

“To be fair to my conscience, he has had that one-year holiday of trying to study the failures of the past administration. I have given him that one year of grace because now he has seen it and lived there.”

He added, “I expect his ministers to have come back in one year with those areas of lapses. Even when Baba (Olusegun Obasanjo) became president in 1999, he was still trying to figure out what happened there or vice versa in his first year. Let’s give him more time.”

George believed that an honest assessment of the performance of the present administration could only be done after the President had spent more time in office.
